Top Ten Things to Build a Minecraft House Out Of

The Top Ten
1 Wooden Planks

When you are in survival and you want to make wooden planks, just cut the trunks of the trees and then go to the crafting table and they give you 4 wooden planks.

It has it all, from a framing block, slabs and stairs, a wall block (fences), a similarly-colored glass block, and wood is my favorite block to use! Aside from a mixture of snow/quartz

True, wooden planks are the most common blocks for building a house in Minecraft. They are also easy to get.

They are easy to obtain and look aesthetically pleasing if one is building in areas such as villages.

2 Cobblestone

I have built my base out of cobble. No need to worry for fires and you can get creative by using Stone bricks,Stone Slabs and more.

Yeah sure Diamond and Obsidian are more cool looking. But do you really want to take all that hardwork finding them just to build when you can do better things with them like making tools or enchanting.

The ideal block to create a medieval fortress. The advantage of creating a medieval fortress is not only that it looks good, but that it has lots of space for mob grinders, storage areas and redstone circuitry.

My house has cobblestone walls and a cobblestone roof. I really like cobblestone and would (literally) trust it with my life - rushing into the house just before a creeper detonates if need be.

Cobblestone is durable and easy to obtain. Obsidian is too hard to mine and wood is too easy to be destroyed by griefers. I recommend 3 block layers, so creepers can't get you.

3 Obsidian

It is very durable and 100% explosion-proof. Raiders will less likely chose your base because it takes ages to break, unable to be blown up and they will be intimidated because diamonds are required to gather obsidian. Nether survival is also required.

Really hard to obtain, but alas you can always get it in the end. In fear of the ender dragon, place water on the side of a pillar and dig so you get under the island. Build your house there!

I did that and no one blew me up OR broke my house. All of the players on MY server only had stone pickaxes.

Obsidian is indestructible other than a wither boss can destoy it upon its creation.P.S. best block in the game, EVER.

4 Giant Mushroom

I live on mushroom island on one of the worlds and have a mushroom treehouse. You're always safe on mushroom islands because no mobs spawn there!

I love making my house in creative mode with mushrooms especially the red mushrooms because they stand out and look unique.

You can actually make a house by taking a red dotted mushroom and using bone meal on it to make a giant mushroom thing. add platforms until the inside is completely dark and covered, then make a 2-block vertical space for your door, then add torches.

Hands down, most under rated building material.

5 Leaves

If you are building a house in the canopy of a Roofed Forest, then leaving the leaves already present and working with that is usually a good idea. Make sure to keep coordinates though. Also make sure that you do not modify the outer canopy in any way as that attracts attention from other players and exposes your base.

Just build your house in a tree. No mobs can get to you, free wood, nice view. Works especially well in Roofed Forest.

Yeah, this would be like a treehouse without wood! You don't need to build, gather, and always wake up to a beautiful sunrise! But you will have to get down to kill animals unless you go to some other trees and live off apples. No mobs can attack you and you can just make a huge world in the trees.

You can see like a boss!

6 Diamond

It'll make you look rich and all, but they aren't the best thing to build your house out of, since you can use them for better things.

I chose a diamond house because I really think that it would be a good idea for a house. I'm not sure if my house is going to explode so technically I'm 50 50 with the diamond house.

Best block to use because all the others will know to stay away from you!

You will be rich if you have a diamond house so I vote for diamonds!

7 Bricks

If you are building in the rustic style, bricks are by far the best possible block. Bricks aren't good for any other style, though, and it can be time-consuming to collect and smelt the clay required to do this.

I used to build most of my Minecraft houses out of bricks.

Bricks just look so rustic and natural.

I have a brick house, it's really pretty.

8 Quartz

Good to build your house out of. So basically, If a player tries to fight you in Minecraft, they will probably think twice after all that Quartz you have, because you can only find that in the NETHER.

Quarts is a wonderful block I use for EVERYTHING! All though hard to obtain in survival it does the trick in creative. I highly recommend this block!

It is a good building material for a house. I usually use wooden blocks to build my house but I decided to change it up a little bit.

Quartz does look nice, but it can be difficult to obtain sufficient quartz to build a decently sized house.

9 Stone

If you build a house underground, using the stone already present there fits the atmosphere of an underground/basement area better than any other block.
Whether or not you keep the granite, diorite, andesite, gravel and dirt you will find there is up to you.

But don't use regular stone on the surface unless it is inside a house built of another material. If you use regular stone in a house made mostly of cobblestone or stone bricks, regular stone can add some variety.

It also looks good for a house in the End, but building anything in the End also comes with its own consequences of it being very difficult to access the house from the Overworld or vice versa.

It reminds me of the good times in caves, lugging back diamonds and redstone. On the flip side, it is dark and intimidating for any player to set foot near it.

Just an overall nice block, and pleasing to the eyes (I'm talking about the people who use emeralds and diamonds for their house.

It is cool because it is smooth and really awesome cause it wont set on fire. Only one problem, It gets blown up if you use tnt.

10 Stone Bricks

The perfect block to create a medieval fortress. The advantage of creating a medieval fortress is not only that it looks good, but that it has lots of space for mob grinders, storage areas and redstone circuitry. It looks better than cobblestone for a project than this, but it will be very difficult to obtain the stone bricks for this unless you tear apart a stronghold brick by brick.

Stone Bricks have the best textures in all of Minecraft. It blends in with smooth stone perfectly, it has a bunch of variants, and it just have an overall coziness to them.

I always like building houses out of stone bricks.

Looks epic in mansions

The Contenders
11 Netherrack

Keep dem fires a burnin

12 Chests

Chests are cool tho

13 Nether Brick

Unlike regular netherrack, nether brick looks aesthetically pleasing in the Overworld. Mixing regular nether brick with red nether brick creates a particularly nice effect, though it can take a long time to obtain the red nether brick.

Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, the Nether is easy to access, you only need flint,iron,water,and lava. Once you reach the Nether, netherrack is plentiful and easy to smelt.

Its good it will make you look like a nether boss.

An overall nice block

14 Bedrock

Well, if you're lock inside a room-full of bedrocks, like the floor is bedrock and the wall is bedrock, just go to creative mode and break it. If the floor isn't bedrock, DIG DOWN AND OUTTA THERE!

My friend built me a house of bedrock on her world and then turned it creative so her brother couldn't break in and steal my stuff.

I love to use bedrock but one problem... I always get locked in side

And I can't get out. HELP!

Haxxer: dumb mod you can never touch me!
Mod: you cheater... *gets angry*
And you cannot get it without creative mode or special permissions

15 Fences

I did that before. Spiders can get over it.

Lots of peep holes I guess?

I don't know why bit it's a great survival alternative to iron bars

16 Gold

Ever since skydoesminecraft introduced me to butter I have been crazy about butter!

I knew butter would show up sooner or later- but I wasn't expecting this early!

Is the best one I use!

17 Dirt

Using rare materials and wood would be wasting. Dirt is perfect: you seem humble, it is plentiful, meaning you can easily rebuild, it is immune to lava, etc.

I make dirt houses when I'm on survival because I don't have anything else. That's until I find a village or get enough wood.

I always build my first house in dirt at the side of a cave.

Why it's so low is because dirt is for champions.

18 White Stained Clay

I love the look of stained clay.

19 Glass

I built an underwater house of glass on one of my worlds. It was so cool!

Looks so good in water

I like windows

20 Snow

I love snow way more than anyone does.
I am a crazy snow lover.

Nice, but you can't place torches, but why isn't there pillars?

You can't place torches in a snow house.

Umm... then what about torches?

21 Sandstone

Looks really nice together.

22 Melon

Melons are dope

23 Wood

Very useful if you are out of wood. Oh come on! Its used for like, everything!

Easy to obtain, pleasing

24 Doors

Without doors some Mobs can easily step into your house.

No house without stones

25 Jack-O-Lanterns
